Okayama Castle is in Okayama City, which was the location of...
Kasaoka Bay Farm, where one million sunflowers bloom in summer.
Kasaoka Bay Farm is located in Kasaoka City, Okayama Prefecture which is a roadside station in a corner of the Kasaoka Bay reclaimed land.
*Bus tickets from Kasaoka Station to Kasaoka Bay Farm are sold near the bus stop in front of Kasaoka Station. (One adult ticket: 500 yen / one-day unlimited ride one-day ticket)
In the adjacent area, seasonal flower gardens will appear: sunflowers in summer, cosmos in autumn, and rape blossoms in spring. The adjacent farmland will be filled with seasonal flowers; sunflowers can be enjoyed from mid-July to early August. People around me were posing for commemorative photos with the sunflowers.
You can surely enjoy shopping.
In the early days when I went there, the sunflower fields were still small and few in number, but I was very impressed. It was summer so it was hot, but the sunflowers in the vast area were breathtaking.
My best memory is the sunflower field. I decided to go in the evening because it was seasonally hot, but the last bus was at 5:25 p.m. and I could only play for an hour and a half. So if you’re going by bus, I suggest coming early!
I hope you all make it to Kasaoka Bay Farm by August!
